The Lakewood Monster

Today we are headed to the Pacific Northwest to just a bit south of Seatle Washington to a town by the name of Lakewood. Lakewood is home to McChord Air Force Base with lots of its residents supported by the base, many of the residents know one another or at least knows a friend of a friend. The small community of around 59,000 people love the area and feel safe here that is until July 4, 1996, that would all change as a monster would pay a visit to Lakewood and change it forever.

It is December 20, 1977, when two hunters, out for the afternoon looking to bring home some ducks for Christmas dinner, stumble upon something. Unfortunately for them, that something was not a holiday feast but the body of a woman who, from the looks of it, had been out there for a while.  The men called the police immediately and due to the location, two responding counties arrive, Fayette County and Clayton County. As officers look closer they can easily see what was the cause of death: two gunshot wounds to her head.  As officers are working to secure the scene and collect evidence, it doesn’t take long to notice something else. They see it is a sleeping bag, but when they pull it from the water, they know it is not empty. Once on the banks, another female body is discovered inside the sleeping bag. Investigators are in shock but this case was far from over.

SPECIAL: Victims of Injustice: Black Lives Matter




***NOTE:This episode is completely different than normal. OTCP, along with 19 other podcasters from around the world, came together to stand with the BLM movement.  Although we had a very small part in the making of this episode, we are so thrilled to be part of it.

**All proceeds from this episode will be donated to The Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund.  https://thelovelandfoundation.org/loveland-therapy-fund/

As podcasters, we have a platform and duty to speak up and call out injustice. In light of the murder of George Floyd, we have come together in solidarity to use our platform to speak up against racial injustice and amplify the voices of black podcasters that deserve more recognition. Racism is prevalent in all industries; from the media who under-report on black victims to the justice system which routinely fails black victims. In this collaborative episode, we document black history and current events with the voices of those who have lived through it.

86. A Stranger in the Night

*THIS EPISODE INVOLVES DETAILS THAT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO HEAR FOR CERTAIN PEOPLE. Listener discretion is advised. 






It is August 5, 1992, just before midnight when 29-year-old Joan Burghardht returns home to her apartment after a night of having fun with friends. When she got inside, she felt something was not right. It scared her enough to call the police. The police arrived at her house and she explained to them about the missing money, the fan, and that it seemed like her dresser drawers had been messed up as if someone was looking for something. Police took her statement and did a sweep of the house. Whoever was in Joan’s apartment earlier was now gone. Officers told her to keep on a few lights and to make sure all the windows and doors stay locked. Sadly for Joan, this would not be the last visit from a stranger in the dark.

Friendship Fraud

Fifty-six-year-old Thomas Jones was a reserved kind of fella. He lived modestly and wanted a simple kind of life so the community of Mulford Delaware provided exactly what he wanted and needed. Thomas lived by himself and was a farmer. He owned and operated a small farm but he was not quite your typical farmer. Thomas was a paraplegic but that didn’t stop him from doing what he loved to do including farming his land.  It was August 13, 1997, when a hired healthcare nurse stopped by to check on Thomas. The nurse called out his name after not answering the door. As she looked around, she knew something was not quite right. Thomas kept a clean and tidy house and things always had their place. There were dishes on the table and a few papers strewn about. His wheelchair was not in the house, so she ventured outside thinking maybe he was just outside. As she was looking around, she saw something and it was not good. There was a splattering of blood in a line as if something was bleeding as it was walking away.  The nurse rushed to call 9-1-1. This is just the start of a twisted tale as it just weirder from here.

84. Broken and Busted: Alyssa Bustamante

On October 21, 2009, a 6-year-old neighbor girl who lives nearby shows up and asks if 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten,  the youngest of Patty Preiss’s children to come over and play for a bit.  At first, Patty said no but we know how convincing two little girls can be and she finally broke and said ok but Elizabeth had to be home by 6 pm for dinner. When 6 pm comes and goes and Elizabeth doesn’t arrive home, her mom knows something is not right. Elizabeth is scared of the dark and would never come home after nightfall. Patty makes a phone call to the neighbor’s house to see what time Elizabeth left their house. Patty is shocked to hear that Elizabeth was never at their house.  Police arrive to investigate and what unfolds is a sick and twisted tale.

83. A Ride with the Devil: Jackie Clarke



It is June 4, 1995, in Fredericton, New Brunswick, when eight-year-old Jackie Clarke goes missing.

That evening, when Jackie didn’t come home, her mother called the parent of one of the friends to see if Jackie was at their house by chance.

82. The Blue Eyed Six





We have another Listener Submitted Script for you today!

The Blue-Eyed Six was a group of men who thought they had a foolproof plan to make money by taking out life insurance policies on an old recluse, named Joseph Raber.  Thinking he was frail and on the verge of death, they hoped for a speedy return on their investment.

This crime became an international sensation  in 1878. In fact, it was so huge, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes, paid homage to the town and the sensational name given to the murderers in his short story 'The Red-Headed League'.

The Blue Eyed Six was researched and written by Listener Amie Felty

81. The Lying Game

It is February 2008 in Arlington Heights Illinois, a suburb of Chicago,  where we first meet a young man by the name of Justin Newman. Justin is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed 20-year old who was working at a home improvement store and trying to figure out what to do with his life. Justin, who lived with his mother, was a generous kid who had been working since he could so that he could help his mom pay the bills. He was a very likable kid, responsible and hard-working. Working at the improvement store, allowed him to meet a lot of construction workers and contractors and one of these contractors was a man by the name of Ari Squire. This chance meeting would leave a trail of destruction. As is so often the case, not all is what it seems.

79. The Murder Game


 

It’s January 18, 1987, at the Alpine Manor Nursing home in Walker, Michigan when a nurse, who was making her rounds, went into the room of a 60-year-old Alzheimer’s patient named Marguerite Chambers. The older woman was unresponsive and not breathing. A team rushed in to revive Marguerite but it was too late. It seems that the woman died sometime during the night. Death is not uncommon in nursing homes but Marguerite was still pretty healthy and her death was not expected. Her family had been in to visit her just the day before and had brought their loved one a balloon bouquet. Her passing was a shock to them but being that she was in a later stage in life, they knew it would happen one day. As is standard practice the staff let the family know and that they needed to come and retrieve her belongings. It was only then that a family member noticed that one of the balloons that they have given their beloved mother and friend was missing. Did someone take one of Marguerite’s balloons and her life? The answer would come but not before others would die just as mysteriously.

78. To Protect and Serve...and Murder : Gerald Schaefer


On July 21, 1972, a man named Gerald John Schaefer picked up two teenage girls who were hitch-hiking. Schaefer told 17-year-old Pamela Wells and 18-year-old Nancy  Trotter that hitchhiking was illegal in Martin County. It wasn’t, but they were young, so they believed him. What this stranger had planned for these two young teens would, thankfully, not happen. The story these two girls would tell officers would lead to a trail of victims and from an unlikely suspect.

77. Leslie "Mad Dog" Irvin: Indiana Serial Killer

A huge thank you to Cynthia Boatright Raleigh for sending us the script for this week's episode.  Her excellent research and writing skills make for an
excellent story.

On December 2, 1954, Mary Holland was found dead on the floor of her liquor store bathroom.  Her hands were tied behind her back and a .38 caliber bullet in her skull.

Three weeks later Wesley Kerr was found dead at the gas station where he worked. Hands tied behind his back and with a gunshot wound to the head. 

It seemed Evansville, Indiana had a killer on the loose.

Join Cam and Jen, with the help of Cynthia Boatright Raleigh, as they discuss Leslie "Mad Dog" Irvin: Indiana Serial Killer

76. The Jamison Family Mystery


 

On October 16, 2009, in Red Oak Oklahoma hunters come across a truck on the side of the road near the top of Panola Mountain. As they start to look around and investigate, they notice that the truck is locked but there is a dog inside. The puppy didn’t look well as it seemed like she had been inside this truck for a long time. The hunters fan out and look around to see if they can find the owner of the truck but have no luck. They call in the Latimer County Sheriff’s to get help.  Investigators arrive, look in the truck and they know immediately something was not right. What happened to the Jamison family? Join Jen and Cam on Our True Crime Podcast as we discuss The Jamison Family Mystery.

****Warning****  This episode is not for the squeamish.You have been warned.







Mornington, Victoria Austria is a quiet coastal town that is located about 35 miles or 57 kilometers south of Melbourne. Many folks from Melbourne take day trips to visit the beaches and wineries that Mornington has to offer.

On May 26, 2004, 37 John Sharpe, a lifelong resident of Mornington goes on TV to plead for anyone with any information about his wife and daughter who have been missing since the end of March.
Although John seems like a concerned father, his body language makes the public suspicious. There seems to be more to the story that the tale John Sharpe is telling but no one is prepared for the truth.

Join Jen and Cam as they discuss the Mornington Monster, Family Annihilator John Sharpe.

74. What Happened to Tiffany?



Twenty-year-old Tiffany Sessions is a junior at the University of Florida studying economics and getting excited to get her life started. It is February 9, 1989, and Tiffany had finished all her classes and decided she would go out and take a walk before hunkering down for a night of studying. Tiffany told her roommate she was going to take her usual powerwalk and she would be back soon which meant she would be returning around 6 pm or so.


Six o’clock comes and goes and Tiffany has not come home yet. By 8 pm, her roommate is starting to worry as this was not like Tiffany at all. At 9 pm, her roommate calls the police and then calls Tiffany’s parents to tell them she was not yet home.  It would take a lot of police work and many years of dead-end leads to figure out what just what happened to Tiffany Sessions on that winter day.

73. The Tragic Death of Amora


*Warning: today’s episode is extremely graphic and contains details involving child abuse. Listener discretion is advised.
Image result for amora blaine


Blaine Milam, 18 years old, had just been released from jail and was now deemed a sex offender. It was shortly after his ‘self-imposed’ release that he met Jessica Carson.  Jessica was still in high school in January 2008 when she fell for Blaine. Jessica, however, was not just a high school teen--she was a mom to a baby girl by the name of Amora, which means ‘love.’  While this threesome would join together and create the perfect family they had always dreamed about, this time would not last. Mental illness, drug abuse and religious delusions set in and all come to together ending with a murder of the most innocent.

72. Edward Maps: The Beatnik that Beat Feet...Or Did He?

January 1964.  Neighbors alert the fire department that 510 Sarah St in Stroudsburg PA was on fire and Edward, Christine and four-month-old Julie Louise were inside.

The first responders found 23-year-old Christine barely alive on the kitchen floor.  They found Julie Louise not breathing only a few feet away from her mother.  

Numerous searches in the house and surrounding areas were held but Edward Maps was never found. 

The District Attorney named Edward a wanted man for arson and murder. The FBI put him on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List.

But in 1995, the case is reopened. Maybe Edward Maps isn't guilty after all.

Come listen to Jen and Cam talk about Edward Maps: The Beatnik That Beat Feet...Or Did he?

69. The Ohio Sniper: When Hunters Become The Hunted

It is April 1, 1989 and 35 year old Donald Welling was enjoying what he often did on weekend mornings which was taking a jog on the pretty back roads of Tuscarawas County. The peaceful moments of enjoying his run were shattered as a long shot rang out. The rifle bullet struck the middle of his heart killing him instantly.  It was just 19 months later when on November 10, 1990,  when 21 year old Jamie Paxton decided to go out and do some bow hunting with his crossbow. He found a nice area off state route 9, parked his car and got out to take a walk and get a look around. He  left his weapon in the car. As Jamie was strolling along, lost in thought, he didn’t realize a man had pulled up and parked near his car. Again, shots rang out. Jamie fell to the ground after being struck three times from a rifle. The gunman would leave no evidence, leave no witnesses and was just getting started.

12 Nightmares Before Christmas Day 11 Easter Sunday Massacre

On Easter Sunday, families gather to celebrate with family and friends. They enjoy the traditional ham dinner with all the trimmings and attend service to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. It is a time to be together with those you love and cherish but for James Ruppert, it was something much different. As we have learned, often things look different on the outside than on the inside and sometimes they are not at all what they seemed.

Join Jen and Cam on day 11 of the 12 Nightmares Before Christmas as we discuss Easter Sunday Massacre.

How many times in your head have you thought about being someone? Like a famous actress? An award winning author? A huge sports star? Today’s story is just that. It reads like a dramatic movie plot featuring Leo DiCaprio as the handsome young doctor who worked hard in the healthcare field, saving lives by the day and discovering the cure for cancer at night. The difference is that Jean-Claude Romand is no Leo and well, actually he is not a lot of things and that is where all the trouble begins.

12 Nightmares Before Christmas Day 3 The Wrath of Orion

A local constable had pulled over to take a break and do some paperwork and while he was parked, a woman comes running up to him. She was in a panic and barely able to get her words out.  She kept saying they are dead, they are all dead. She begged the officer to come with her.
They arrive to a house and find a scene right out of a movie.  While barely clinging to life,  a woman who had been stabbed and would later be identified as 73 year old Virginia Critchley, was able to give some information about who carried out this massacre.  She whispered, 'two boys.’  It was a clue but how these two boys were connected would take awhile to figure out and leave several devastated.

12 Nightmares Before Christmas: Day 1 The Torturous Murder of Kelly Anne Bates





Warning: This episode contains extreme domestic violence.
In 1993, Kelly-Anne Bates was just an English teenager who at 14 years old was babysitting for friends when she met a man named James Smith. James, at age 46, was 32 years older than Kelly and he set his sights on her and immediately began grooming her. Kelly, young and naive, had no idea about his previous abusive relationships and fell for him quickly. Kelly worked hard to keep the relationship a secret from her parents, Tommy and Margaret Bates, whom she knew would not be happy and managed to do so for two years.

#66. The Slayer's Book of Death

On July 29, 1993, law enforcement authorities were alerted to a crime scene where they found two bodies in a field near Tellico, in Ellis County, Texas. The first body discovered was that of a nude decapitated girl whose hands were also missing. It looked like she had been shot in the back as well. Her body was badly mutilated.
While officers were looking around for the rest of her missing parts, they
discovered another body of a boy.  It looked like he had been shot but unlike the girl, his body was intact. The boy had a wallet in his pants and a library card let authorities know his name James Bryan King. 
The two teens were brutally murdered by a suspect who was supposed to be their friend. This friend, however, had more than a few secrets and obsessions.
Join Jen and Cam on today's episode of Our True Crime Podcast entitled "The Slayer's Book of Death."

#65. The Killer and the Bobby Soxer: Thora Chamberlain

***Jen says the name Thomas McGonagall.  It is actually  Thomad McMonigle. We have found article stating both names, but McMonigle is the the correct one.  Jen must watch too much Harry Potter***

By mid 1945, World War II was over and service men were headed back home.  Men in uniform were held in high regard for their bravery overseas.
Teenage girls were called Bobby Soxers for their penchant for wearing short socks with loafers or saddle shoes while swooning over the handsome new crooner named Frank Sinatra.
One such Bobby Soxer stood in front of her school, anxiously awaiting to cheer for her high school football team, when a man in a uniform pulled his car over to ask a question.

Cam and Jen wish a warm welcome to our new researcher and writer Lana McCall.  This is her first episode of hers we have done.  She is fantasic!
